It’s obvious
You’re a little blinded by that thing you got
But we’re all not impressed
Frankly disappointed if that’s your best shot
So if your best intentions get you honourable mention
Then it might be time to re-evaluate
But if you think it’s worth it, or perhaps you deserve it
Take a look at your smile because it’s fading away

“settling” is a dirty word
But second place is the first place for losin’ if you prefer.
Baby, you can’t be sure
And you think what you’ve got is the best
I think that you can do better
I think that you can do better

I apologize if I was out of line with anything I said (oh-oh)
Well no, not really
But I sympathize with the lovey-dovey bullshit going round around around around right round in your head
And I got some knowledge that even with spit and polish any diamond in the rough still cuts like a fucking diamond
And right now you don’t need it. You’ll be back when you’re bleedin’. And I said, I’ll say again

I’m sick of watching do okay
And pretending that it’s so great
If you’re showing off your best play
I’ve got one thing to say (oooooh-ooooh, oooh-oooh, ah ahhh)

“settling” is a dirty word
But second place is the first place for losin’ if you prefer.
Darlin’, you can’t be sure
And you think what you’ve got is the best
I think that you can do better
